Shopping Trip - August 14th

Yeah, yeah, yeah I'm WAY behind!!! I have just posted all of my trips from the last two weeks if you would like to get caught up. My trip today took me to CVS, Walgreens, and Albertsons. Make sure to scan your CVS card at the coupon machine when you go this week. CVS is promising everyone at least one free item coupon. I ended up getting two!! My OOP was A LOT higher than it usually is, but that's because I bought makeup and quite a few vitamins (Nathan and I are trying to be a little healthier!) Here's what I got:

4 rolls of Bounty Paper Towel
5 bottles of Gatorade G-Fit 02 Perform
1 Caramello Bar (free CVS coupon)
2 2L bottles of Diet Pepsi
2 24-packs of Nestle Pure Life Water
2 bottles of Melatonin (60 ct)
2 bottles of Calcium (150 ct)
2 bottles of Vitamin C (100 ct)
2 Revlon Custom Creation Foundations
1 box of CVS brand Band-Aids (free CVS coupon)
1 box of Prilosec (14 ct - got a free CVS coupon for this in the mail)
4 packages of Cottonelle Moist Wipes (84 ct)
1 package of Cotton Squares (200 ct)

Total Shelf Cost: $155.28
Total OOP: $62.31
60% Savings

Like I said, this is a lot more than I usually spend, but I'm a happy camper considering all the high priced items that I got!

Shopping Trip - August 10th

Here's my Kroger stop for this week.

2 12-Packs of Cottonelle Bath Tissue
4 boxes of Minute Maid Frozen Lemonade Cups
1 package of Hormel Bacon (I could have gotten a much better deal on this, but Nathan decided he needed it while we're in the store. He doesn't quite understand the importance of planning for shopping trips yet. He'll get there!)
1 2L bottle of Diet 7-Up
1 bottle of Aussie Leave In Conditioner
3 jars of Oxy Astringent Pads
3 bottles of Oxy Spot Control

Total Shelf Cost: $67.76
Total OOP: $17.96

Shopping Trip - August 7th

You may notice that my shopping trips are getting smaller. That's not because the deals aren't out there. It's simply because I'm getting to the point where our stockpile is built up enough that I'm only getting things that I feel need to be replenished.

10 bottles of Lysol Wipes
2 Softsoap Refills
3 bottles of Softsoap Hand Soap
1 Highlighter (filler)

Total Shelf Cost: $50.47
Total OOP: $24.72
ECBs Earned: $3.00
Total Cost: $21.72

I was so excited about the Lysol wipes (I need to get a life, I know!) They were on sale and when I went to get them I found they had bonus double packages for the sale price! They only had 4 on the shelf, but I'll take it!! Instead of getting 6 like I had planned, I walked out with 10!!!

Shopping Trip - August 3rd

I have started heading to the grocery store more and I feel like I'm just starting to get the hang of things. Hopefully I'll keep getting better and better so I can save on most of our food in addition to our toiletries.

2 bags of Kettle Chips
1 bag of Boulder Gluten Free Chips
5 bottles of Crest Toothpaste
12 bars of Ivory Soap
3 bars of Safeguard Soap
